HUGE BULLYING issue in this school. The teachers and administration just let it happen and make excuses about how this is a middle school, which it is NOT. It is still an elementary school regardless of the name. Oh yes, they suspend, but AFTER the fact. My child had been attacked and we have reported it over and over. We are stuck in the school district, but will move if we can just to get away from William Henry. Tired of their lack of watching the kids closely with out enough supervision (only required levels) on the play ground where teachers chit chat the entire time until a fight breaks out. HORRIBLE. HORRIBLE. HORRIBLE.

I have worked in other school but I love William Henry Middle School! I have worked here for 4 years and I know that the principal, teachers, and staff genuinely care for of the students. We have don't a lot of things to improve the climate so, kids want to be in school. We have done several activities to improve student success in Reading and Math. There are new afterschool programs that get students engaged in academics as well as pro-social activities. I'm proud to have worked here.

I've had two children attend WHMS since the change in administration and they LOVED it. Let your kids be kids and they will enjoy it too.The negative rumors in the community need to be buried! This is a different school and it is great school.

I've had 2 children, a niece and a nephew attend William Henry in the past 2 years and I've been very pleased. Yeah, there were concerns from time to time but the principal was very responsive and immediately handled my issues. As a Hartly mom that worries all the time, I was comfortable and at ease within the first couple of months of school. It really is a new place.

My daughter just completed 6th grade. She had a wonderful two years at WHM. Great leadership and extra curricular activities. The majority of her teachers have been above average and problems were dealt with swiftly.
